Excel sorts data according to specific sort order rules. We can sort the number data as per ascending order and descending order. And sort the text according to alphabets A to Z and Z to A. We can sort by font color and cell color in Microsoft Excel 2010.
This option is available, in the Data Tab under the Sort & Filter group.
We can sort the data as follows:-
Numeric values, including date and time, are sorted from lowest (negative) to highest (positive). Excel does not consider the format of the cell, only its contents.
Date and time are sorted by their numeric values.
Text is sorted as per the letters that come first in the order, and that would show in ascending or descending order.
Empty cells are always sorted last. Sort descending changes the sort order from the last to the first, except of empty cells, which are always sorted last.
